Loco Motion: The Golden Age of Motion Controls

Posted by Claude (16254 posts) -

I'm a motion fan. Maybe it's my age, or the type of video games I've played throughout my gaming life; lots of sports games, golf being my  favorite. I've branched out from my early gaming life as I now like having a variety of play options when playing video games, keyboard mouse, dual analog controller and the combination of motion capabilities for a given game. 
 

 He's Loco
 
 With an abundance of Motion

 
That's why I'm so excited for next year. With Move and Kinect coming out soon, next year should allow for a cornucopia of options for motion fans.       

 
 
 
 
I can see it on the horizon, The Golden Age of Motion Controls. And for the people that hate motion controls, no need to worry, you'll have your standard sets of games and control-ability. But having options of play makes me feel all giddy inside. So jump on-board... the Loco Motion.

Wait, how can you know that this is the Golden Age for motion controls? Isn't that a term largely used retroactively?

1995-1996 was the golden age of Virtual Reality.

Now I'm hoping that Dance Central will have Loco Motion in the track list at some point. 
DAMN YOU CLAUDE!

Indeed. Heck, I'm not even that much excited for Dance Central, but I'd certainly be more intrigued to check it out.

If there is a golden age of motion controls, we're not there yet. We're barely out of the dark ages.

I was watching the moving-picture-box, and I saw that Wii-Bowling is really trendy with geriatrics like you. :P

Good points. I might just be a geriatric gamer living in the dark ages.

I'm really looking forward to Kinect.  It should open up gaming to a lot of people.
